Gargoyles

Hi Everyone!
I just wanted to share my Gargoyles I made from the Free cartridge A Frightful Affair, I think this is the 3rd week in a row it has been free in Cricut Craft Room.
I just stumbled upon this image, at first I thought it was a bat. It is the same key as the letter L and the word Evil.
 I made my own adhesive foam in black so you would not be able to see the white foam adhesive. The bottom 2 layers I adhered together at the feet with out foam and 1 layer of foam at head. The next layer I used 2 layers of foam adhesive so the front feet of gargoyle would stand out more. The top layer, the head, I used 3 layers of adhesive.



 You can not see by the pictures but can in video, but I used prism paper, behind the head, so the eyes change when you look at them and move them. I am showing 2 different Gargoyles I made in the pictures here.
I shaded the gargoyles with ink by studio G and a foam brush. You will see in video.

Stabbing Halloween Decor

Hi Everyone,


I am getting ready for Halloween, we are having a decorate your station contest at work and we have to have it ready by October 1st. I have already made a Trick or Treat banner with letter written in blood and now this knife and arm from A Frightful Affair Cricut cartridge, I do Not own this cartridge but it was free for a week in Cricut Craft Room so I took full advantage of it and have another project coming up with it too. 



Here is a close up of the arm, I used chalk pastels to add detail to make it more realistic. I used a pencil to add hair on knuckles and arm, used pastels to make moles and blue veins that you can not see well in picture but they are there you can see better in video. I stamped the tattoo on with ink from CTMH slate color. You can see me to the entire arm in high speed in my video.

For the blood on the end of knife I used red paper and covered it with Glossy Accents, to make is look wet.



I know this is kinda creepy. I don't like violence, but I like scary.

Here is the video, Enjoy.

Cricut Craft Room Tutorials

Hi Everyone!

I am making a series of Cricut Craft Room Tutorials. I have made 6 videos so and plan to make more soon.
If you have never tried CCR watch and it will not seem so intimidating.

The first one is for extreame beginners and will show where to download it and introducing you to CCR.


The 2nd video is about images, auto fill, bookmarking searching, and more.

The third video shows you how to upload and down load cut files. 
Brings you to the project center at Cricut.com



The 4th video is all about mats, some people that are using CCR have learned a lot from this video.

The 5th Video in the series is about Layers, This was the most asked for video and some say I have made CCR much more clear now. You will see how to size everything to match up and easily fit the layers on an object.



The 6th video is all about linking your cartridges to CCR, I actually had trouble with a specific cartridge and called Cricut Support and recorded the call, you will see it here.


Thanks for watching! Let me know what else you want a video on.

2 New Cricut cartridges

Hi Everyone!

Cricut has announced 2 new cartridges Edge to Edge exclusively at Joanns until 2014 and Monster Bash.

I did get the Edge to Edge, I love it and have so many ideas on how to use it. Here is a video of me in Joanns and finding it. Some people can not find it and some workers do not know it is in the new packaging so they are looking for bigger cartridges. 

I got the cartridge on sale for $24.99 Reg. $29.99

It does not have an overlay with it.









This is from my daily vlogging YouTube channel



Here is a video showing the handbook and then a few project examples at the end.


Here is the Monster Bash click picture to take you to it at Cricut.com

Cricut Craft Room Tutorial Videos

Hi Everyone! I have made a Cricut Craft Room tutorial video series. This has been asked for by many so I am here to share what I know about the software, I have even learned more about it as I make it. 

If you have any questions please ask in the comments and I will try to answer there because if you have a question I believe more will have the same question so you are helping others by asking.

 You can go to the playlist of CCR videos and they will all play continually and as I add more there will be more here.


 This First video is for beginners with the Cricut, I show Cricut.com and signing in and the message boards as a great way to share and find information. Show you where to download Cricut Craft Room.

The second video is about the images, where to find them and a little on editing them.

Third video is all about downloading and uploading CCR cut files.



The forth video in the series is about the mats, and how to add more and why. How to hide the mats and more.


The 5th video is the last one as of today but should be more tomorrow. This is a good one even if you are using CCR already, people seam to learn from it when they thought they knew the software already. I use Teddy Bear Parade to show the Real Dial size button and Relative Size button and layers with many mats but then cutting on only 1 mat.


Some people will know more than me and if you do and want to point something out I am happy to learn something new. 

Please Subscribe to my YouTube channel and like and share the videos if you know someone who might find them useful.

Cricut in a Polymer Clay Cane

Hi Everyone,

I finally finished a project I have been working on for months. I made the Cricut Logo in a polymer clay cane. I made a video and it is kinda long but most of it is in high speed. I think it's fun to watch to see how it was created. I made a key chain, and will make more things from it in he future.


 It all was one big piece.I cut some off and I rolled it to get it smaller

Here is the video.
